John and Minnie are believed to have been married Christmas 1884. They farmed near Williamstown and later Sumner. They raised 6 children, including a set of twins, birth order unknown. Martha Mary Elizabeth, Alwin, Elsie, Ernest, Rose & John. The parents retired to Sumner, and both are buried in Sumner.
